Maribel García

Postdoc Researcher

I am a biogeochemical oceanographer with a deep interest in the link between chemical and physical oceanographic processes and their implications in the marine environment. My PhD focused on understanding the anthropogenic perturbation in the inorganic carbon cycle in the North Atlantic Ocean. The results of my PhD, and other works that I co-authored, highlighted the role of the water mass transformation in the relatively fast acidification rates of the intermediate and deep waters of the Subpolar North Atlantic. My work experience also includes leakage detection in offshore reservoirs related to carbon capture and storage (CCS), characterization of dyes used to measure seawater pH, and exploration of the internal consistency of the measurements of the oceanic carbonate system, characterisation of the processes affecting the carbon uptake in the Southern Ocean, and analysis of tipping points for North Atlantic cold-water corals.
